About the Series

2014 EPIC Award Winner for Best Horror Novel John G. Hartness returns to the dark world of Quincy Harker in Straight to Hell, the second novella in this top-selling series. Straight to Hell continues the Charlotte-based adventures of Quincy Harker, immortal wizard child of Jonathan Harker and Mina Murray, two of the most beloved characters from Bram Stoker’s classic vampire novel Dracula.

Harker and his motley crew of detectives, angels, shadowy government operatives and hacker/sniper/manservants must band together to rescue a kidnapped UNC-Charlotte student and stop a death cult from using his blood to open the Seven Seals and bring about the Apocalypse. Along the way they battle the physical embodiment of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and rack up millions of dollars in property damage in this thrill ride of a novella.

The Enchanted Alley’s Review

Straight to Hell is the second Quincy Harker novella that I have had the pleasure of reading. Hartness’s newest release is a tense race against time to save the world from the impending doom. The opening chapter is the top of the hill on this roller coaster ride, and it doesn’t slow down until the car is back in the house. Harker is a hoot of a character, but as hilarious and badass as he is, I have to say that my favorite character is Renfield. I so want to hang out with him.

Even though Straight to Hell is the second in the series, you can read this one without having read the first one. But, why wouldn’t you? Check out Raising Hell while you’re waiting for April 28 to roll around!
